For the first time since 2005, the 2-Year/10-Year yield curve inverted in the US bond market. An inverted yield curve means that the yield on 10-Year Treasuries trade below the yield of 2-Year Treasuries, suggesting that bond traders don’t see a bright future ahead. The yield moves opposite of the price, so as yields drop the price increases. The majority of analysts and economists view and inverted yield curve as a messenger for a recession. The last five times this inversion occurred, the US economy entered a recession.
